Gnome is a painted ceramic sculpture that I was commissioned to make from an illustrated sketch.  He is a character in the Harry Potter books and the description are as follows:

".... the angel at the top of the tree was actually a garden gnome that had bitten Fred on the ankle as he pulled up carrots for Christmas dinner. Stupified, painted gold, stuffed into a miniature tutu and with small wings glued to its back, it glowered down at them all, the ugliest angel Harry had ever seen, with a large bald head like a potato and rather hairy feet."

The further instructions was: "... something quite detailed and full of character and for the humour to be prominent..."
